Welcome to the FunCart Experience!
We have one simple goal: to deliver the world’s best family shopping experience!
Let’s face it, shopping is boring for young kids and can be very stressful for parents, not to mention other shoppers! Our solution has been to rethink the shopping cart, with the goal of delivering a positive, educational, multidimensional shopping cart that entertains and involves children, while allowing their parents to have a more peaceful and productive shopping experience.
Involve the kids, make it fun, make it interactive, make it educational and they will shop in peace …and parents and other shoppers will too!
Our team here at Aisleworx has extensive experience in making life easier for parents shopping with children, and now after two years of development, we are proud to announce our best ever shopping cart: The FunCart!
What is a FunCart?
The cart is the latest in cool and funky design. Each has the same footprint as standard shopping cart and carries over 10,000 cubic inches of groceries in four different storage areas.
Inside Screen For Children
Each cart has an inside screen that features the very best in kids entertainment that is wholesome and world class. We have two hours of 7 minute segments from the very best characters that children can see on TV, which is updated remotely on a regular basis.
Media Screen For Brands
Each cart has an exterior screen designed for brands to showcase their products and services. Each message plays several times and hour and can be linked to the time or place in the store, allowing sophisticated and suitable brands to reach shoppers as they make their buying decisions. Like the inside media this is downloaded weekly and monitored in real time to ensure that its working and being effective.
Each cart links in to a service portal that sits in the cloud and downloads logs and service information for us to analysis. For you, that means better and reliable service and the ability to remotely diagnose and fix problems before any one knows that they are happening.
Your Children Are Involved In The Shopping Experience
If you are worried that this is simply parking kids in front of a TV, don’t be. Firstly, the child’s screen is only playing carefully selected educational children’s programs from their favorite characters. And we have proven that the screen is only one element in that is a much more interactive experience for children than any other form of shopping.
The FunCart itself – driving it and ‘being in charge’- is the main attraction for young children.
The entertainment screen is mostly watched when the cart is still and provides a short term, rather than long term, distraction that adds to rather than takes away from the shopping experience. Our specially-designed children’s programs don’t just entertain but educate too, so it’s a double win – happy kids, learning and having fun, and a less stressed parent who can shop in peace!
Your Kids Are Safer
With over 20,000 hospitalisations of young children in accidents to do with shopping carts, the traditional cart can be dangerous to your children. The main problem is in falls from the top onto concrete or solid floors. Fun carts solve that. A recent major study on this important issue made seval recommendations, but the most important was: Locate children closer to the floor. 2 inches is safe. 3 feet is not.
Washington Post “Despite warnings, about 24,000 kids are hurt annually in shopping cart accidents.”
